interest in foreign -- foreign power to use its leverage over the government, whether it's financial, diplomatic or political to try and shape what the egyptian government here is doing. on more than one occasion, they have said that they take into consideration their allies, their concerns of international community, but when it comes down to what's happening here in egypt, they are making their own sovereign decision. so they are striking a more defiant tone when it comes to the type of -- the united states and the european union are talking about perhaps cutting off aid or shaping the economic benefits of this relationship. today the saudi king pledged his commitment to pledge money to the egyptian government so they feel some type of financial constrictions from foreign powers. they have already pledged nearly $12 billion in aid to the egyptian government. they say they're willing to give it more if need be so long as those countries don't interfere in egypt's domestic affairs. >> i want to bring in richard wolf and sam stein. richard, we were talking about the europe u

the hearing was over, we spoke to a state prosecutor that confirmed to us that the charges are still premeditated murder, they believe that pistorius that reeva was in that bathroom when he fired those shots. most interesting on the indictment some of the state witnesses heard a woman scream, followed by gun shots, and then the woman screaming. veronica? >> claudio, thank you. >>> more bloodshed in egypt, as more promorsi supporters are killed. the new york times reports that the obama administration is taking preliminary steps to withhold aid to egypt. >> with the recent violent crackdown i don't see how we can continue aid. >> the act of the last few days is completely uncon shenable. i believe we have to change our aid. >> change our relationship with the military. >> joining us live now from cairo is yussef, what is the latest. >> reporter: another attack in the border town of rafa. in the northern town of the sinai peninsula. nbc news has learned that 28 conscripts from the police were on their way in two mini buses to the town, they were ambushed by armed gunmen. they were orde

getting the military equipment from us and ironically, that money goes to u.s. defense contractors. i think this issue is much bigger than withholding aid. this is a relationship that has been developed over decades with mu bar ark who was a dictator as well. you're absolutely correct when you say that this is a pivotal relationship. for us to do anything that is more than withholding or suspending aid i think would be a disaster. i think we have to main that relationship. >> we are walking on a tight rope as we consider this. i know state is keeping this under a constant review. the president besides having to deal with the foreign issue of egypt domestically here at home we have obama care and immigration, the debt ceiling crisis, jobs and middle class bill that could be taken up and fielding questions about the controversial nsa program. do you think the biggest onus is on the president and not having a government shutdown, especially tied to the date of october 1st when open enrollment begins for obama kaye? >> i think it is, in fact, a pivotal time relative to the issues as well.

state. which means, gas prices go up for us. this is an absolute disaster in the making. >> suez in jeopardy, gas prices. is that a realistic possibility in this situation? >> reporter: well, there's no doubt that egypt is cornerstone of stability in the middle east. all of those things that senator li lindsey graham mentioned, could play out. the increasing lawless nns the northern part of sinai, these rising mill about the attacks are becoming more and more brazen and more and more deadly. that's giving egyptian officials major concern. if it spreads out to other parts of egypt it could threaten the stability of this country and the rest of this region. >>> all right, here at home, conditions out west are perfect for wildfires and that's not perfect at all when you think about what's going on there. 44 burning. none worst than the beaver creek fire. the first fires laid out 10,000 homes are in jeopardy and more than 1,000 firefighters are trying to get things under control as the flames threaten some tourist towns prompting widespread evacuations and bringing business to a halt. t

egypt this year. does the u.s. use that as leverage? a growing chorus of lawmakers is arguing it's time to pull the plug on aid to egypt. >> when we threaten something, as we did that we would cut off aid, the administration did and then not do it, then you lose your credibility and your influence. >> we are going to have to suspend our aid. >> i do not see how we can continue aid. >> i do believe we have to change our aid. >> i think the actions of the last week, no doubt cause us to suspend eight. >> it's counterproductive and shows nothing but american weakness to continue it. >> i want to bring in michael crowley and ann garran. what is the calculus the white house is weighing this morning? >> is there a bipartisan call in congress to suspend aid. really as you pointed out in your introduction, chris, there isn't a ton of aid left to go this year out of 1.3 billion. it's something between 5 and 600 that is left so they could withhold some of that. it probably wouldn't have a great effect or immediate effect on the generals in cairo but send a symbolic message than the white house ha

going to have 23 debates these guys are making it easier for us to pair that down to a reasonable number in front of people and entities that give a darn about the future of the republican party. >> you are also -- >> but al, i thought that speaking only to your base was not a way to win? >> well, i am just simply outraged this discriminatory and exclusionary policy. where's glen beck? glen beck has to be in the mix here somewhere. look, this is -- this is, i think, probably a lot of do about things that are going to take a different turn. i don't like these whatever you call them, biopics, i don't think it's such a great idea, but the debates, i mean i like reince priebus but the idea that the debates are what killed the republicans last time was nonsense. it wasn't the circus, it was the animals in the circus. hillary and obama debated through may of 2008 and didn't hurt them. my guess is this is going to shake out in a different way and debates are determined in the end not by the rnc chairman but by the frontrunner. if the frontrunner participates there are debates. if he or s

encourage us to stay close to it the military as the only institution in egypt that can restore some degree of stability in egypt. fact of the matter is, when you play all this out, we're going to turn the clock back to see where egypt was in the ely '80s after the assassination of the president. there will be an unfortunate tendency of the brotherhood to go underground and report to terrorism. the military will crackdown and we'll see a period of violence in egypt, but we'll nevertheless place our bets once again with the egyptian military. >> you mentioned the role of israel in all this, an important american ally. "the new york times" today reporting that israeli ambassadors -- i'm going to read from the article -- in washington, london, paris, berlin, and other capitals are lobbying foreign ministers arguing that rule by the egyptian military is the only hope to prevent further chaos in cairo and concerns about democracy and human rights should take a backseat to stability and security. dana, thinking about that role there, why is it that the sort of foreign policy and national s

preserving? peace in the sinai desert, access to the suez canal, keeping peace in the region, helping us with counterterror? >> i think in the long term, both those objectives are not only necessary but closely related. we have to have a true democracy in egypt over the long term. we recall, as you do, that the latest entry into the government by the egyptian military was sponsored by people who were rejecting morsi. a huge number of people coming out, a popular movement. unfortunately, i think what the military has done is taken this as a license to try to install the old national security regime that was featured under mubarak. we need both in the long run. we can't ignore the security considerations of the sinai, of the suez canal transit, but in the long term, the success of the region's going to be based upon a fully functioning democracy. we've seen that take place, but we also understand it takes an awfully long time. it's not a straight-line process. it's zigging and zagging. we have to be engaged, but we have to recognize, too, that in the long term, our values, but also our sel

egypt that was planned for next month. it's a step many are calling insufficient. >> for us to sit by and watch this happen is a violation of everything that we stood for. when we threaten something as we did that we would cut off aid, the administration did, and then not do it, then you lose your credibility and your influence. >> i do not see how we can continue aid. i believe it must be suspended. >> the acts of the last few days by the egyptian military are unconscionable. i do believe we have to change our aid. i think also we have to have included in the legislation a national security waiver. >> there you go. don't overlook the importance of that last caveat from jack reed there. it suggests that even if congress does pass legislation that cuts off aid, it could be toothless, leaving the white house flexibility make the final call. every step of the way, calls from congress to cut off aid has gotten louder. the white house has slow walked its response. the president released a statement citing concern and saying, quote, the united states is monitoring the very fluid situation i

were sold the bill of goods. it's not that they hated us for our lattes and gap jeans and lap dances, but to the contrary it's our foreign policy, our so-called involvement in what they described a the arabian peninsula. tamron, here we are funding the side that overthrew a democratically elected president and then killed 600 to 700 protesters. it's truly unconscionable. >> as our team on the ground, ayman mohyeldin and others, have reported, both sides in this equation are not, if you will -- and i hate to put it so simply -- fans of the united states here. now you have to factor in, p.j., this hosni mubarak equation. you heard ayman in his report talk about that is again stoking the flames of what could certainly turn out to be far worse than the 1,000 lives already lost. >> well, picking up on michael's point, the message -- i mean, we had an opportunity to the -- to send a message six weeks ago. whatever we do now, the damage is done. the fact that we haven't called it a coup sends a real message to it the muslim brotherhood that, yeah, you're not going to respect the results of
